i have a proposition on the current RC1 and the final release phase:
If the current state of the documentation is the real problem not to release the ISO - hell, let's remove ALL documentation from THIS release. We have not an official ISO release since 2008.06 and now someone found a "yaourt" in the docu!
IMHO: the RC1 is in release state from technical state. Let's build the final without docu (i guess not many people will ever need them really) and fix the last minor things (typo in /etc/issue, etc.).
*** And release it. **
If we switch to aif next release the docu must rewritten again.
